Which of God's name do you need today? Susan Harris

Isaiah 9:6 - For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (NIV)

Over the Christmas season we sing many hymns that adore the Lord. When we are adoring His names and  His person we are engaging in praise. Praise is verbal adoration that honours God and we are called to pray through praise. When we begin our prayer with adoration, we unselfishly place the focus on God (and not on ourselves by “asking” right away). 

Which of God's names are  most meaningful to you. Which name or names of God do you need to draw from today? (A free online concordance is available at

Prayer Starter - Your name, Jesus, saves me from my sins. You are the Wonderful Counsellor who I can turn to when I need advice and guidance. You are Mighty God, strong, powerful and dependable, and I am so relieved that I can turn to you in my weakness. You are the Everlasting Father, there is no end in you. You are my eternal Father, caregiver and provider…..

Thank you, Susan. How true. And how better it is that we check ourselves from rushing into prayer toting a great "wish-list" of requests (even if our concerns are mostly for other people's needs), without first offering up sincere adoration, thanksgiving and praise from our hearts. ~~+~~
